Having it all……..

I took two of my grandsons over to Norris Lake to join my brother Homer for a day of fishing out on the lake.  This sign hangs in his houseboat which he bought in 1991.  As I spent the day with Homer and Elijah, (Wes and Rhonda’s son) and Ben, (Scott and Diane’s son),  I was reminded of how true that plaque is in my life.  My third grandson, Cade (Clint and Catherine’s son) was tied up with soccer pratice, and sadly couldn’t join us!


A peceful day on the water with Homer running his trolling motor and the boys fly casting was a great time to be had by all!

Victory for Elijah.

I want to thank Homer for getting up so early, (4:30 am), to meet us at his houseboat and provide this fantastic grandfather/grandson experience for us!  I sure wish Cade could have joined us, but maybe next time!


Not bragging, just thanking God, but I truly have it all!
